Our Mission

  • South Middle School will empower our learning community to think intensively and critically; we will cultivate intellect with character to develop 21st century learners.

Principal's Welcome

  • What makes South Middle School unique? It's the warm educational climate, where students come first and our teachers focus on 21st century educational skills, emphasizing technology integration and active learning as primary forms of engagement. Our staff understands the social and development needs of young adolescents and the importance of our equity work to meet the needs of all students. With this in mind we promote positive social interaction, school spirit, and a persistence in rigorous and culturally relevant instruction. We thank you for sharing your child with us, and I encourage you to contact me with questions or suggestions at any time.
    Keith Jones, Ed.D.

The 6th grade students will have a rollout workshop in the evening from 5p.m.-7p.m.) Since this is the first time for 6th grade students to have a device we thought it would be great to have some workshops available to answer questions for parents, help student get signed on, and make sure we communicate to parents and students the expecations with the new device.)
